which version of IE are you using? if not using IE8, then you must download and install it before, but if you are using IE8 then i suggest you to do following...
1. block pop-ups : click on tools, then select pop-up blocker and then go to pop-up blocker settings, and remove the unwanted address from the list there and turn the pop-up blocker on.
2. Check your homepage : click on tools, then select internet options and then check your homepage, you may use blank, or list your choice there.
3. you may reset IE8 to default : to do this, click on tools, then internet options, then click on advanced tab and then click on reset. it will reset the IE settings to default.
be careful to do so, you will lost all your settings by doing so.....
Your IE could have been hijacked. Do try the above steps.
Run your Anti-virus and anti-spyware. Also clear PC junk with CCleaner.
Which IE version are you using? I presume it is IE8 or IE7.
Open Internet Options, go to Advanced Tab and click on Reset tab. Restart IE. This step deletes all temp files, disables any add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default. Although this is a quick-fix, you will have to re-install the add-ons. The settings which are affected by this are mentioned here. More on the RIES feature of IE7 at Reset Internet Explorer Settings or RIES feature of IE 7. .
